• Review Ghost Giant - A PSVR Masterpiece

    Thank you for the music

    If we were to hand out awards for adorability at the end of this year, Zoink! Games’ latest would already have the entire competition beat four months in. Ghost Giant has to be one of the most charming and lovable experiences we’ve had this generation, and to witness its beauty through PlayStation VR is quite a sight to...


  • Review Flipping Death (PS4)

    One foot in the grave

    2013’s Stick It to the Man was among the PlayStation 3’s indie swansongs when it released four days after the North American launch of the PS4, but that didn’t manage to overshadow what we thought was a short but quality experience at the time.

This tale also includes aliens, a few clowns, a crocodile with a taste for human flesh, and a skeleton pirate. With the kind of dark humour that you may remember from the likes of Ren and Stimpy – and an art style to match – this is an...


  • Review Stick It to the Man (PlayStation 3)

    "I know what you're thinking"

    Stick It to the Man wonderfully treads the line between dark and silly. It's Ren and Stimpy-esque aesthetic is plopped on top of a paper craft construction, which gives it a unique and endearing look that brings each character – whether it be human or otherwise – to life in a surreal and smile inducing way. Add to...
